Joytv is a former privately held Canadian television system owned by ZoomerMedia. Joytv aired a mix of multi-faith and family-oriented programming in the form of dramas, comedies, newsmagazines, talk shows and more.


The Joytv system launched on September 1, 2008, and consisted of two existing television stations, CHNU-TV in Vancouver, British Columbia and CIIT-TV in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Both stations were acquired by S-VOX from Rogers Media in April 2008.

The stations had previously been branded as part of Rogers' Omni Television system prior to their purchase by S-VOX. Rogers rebranded CHNU as CHNU 10 in the fall of 2007, because the company's contemporaneous purchase of the multilingual station CHNM-TV meant that the Omni brand would eventually be moved to that station, but retained the Omni brand on CIIT. After the S-VOX purchase was finalized in the summer of 2008, CIIT was briefly rebranded as "CIIT 11" until the Joytv launch.

In June 2009, S-VOX announced it would sell its broadcasting assets, including Joytv, to ZoomerMedia, a company controlled by Moses Znaimer.[1] The sale was approved by the CRTC on March 30, 2010.[2] ZoomerMedia assumed control of the Joytv system on June 30, 2010.[3]

The system was dismantled in late August 2013 when CIIT was rebranded was "Hope TV" and all non-secular programming was dropped from the schedule. The Joytv brand continues to exist on CHNU.
